Otto’s Monster

 I had a visit to the studio today by Otto who is 10. He is making his own monsters with bits of felt, he hand stitches them and fills them with rice. He told me that he attaches plastic bags onto them and when they’re thrown up in the air, the plastic back becomes a parachute.  He showed me his amazing sketch book which was full of sketches of monsters he’s going to make and sell to his friends.  Reminded me of my sketchbooks that I used to do when I was young, I used to sell things made of Fimo to friends and family too. (lucky them!)
Here’s a page from his book with pictures of my creatures as inspiration, but I think I was the one who was most impressed! well done Otto!
